Introduction to roundabouts on US 41

The De Pere roundaboutA safer kind of intersection
Roundabouts are gaining popularity in the United States due to their proven track record of providing safer and more efficient traffic flow. These circular intersections have flared entryways marked by yield signs and a centerpiece that deflects traffic, causing drivers to slow down. You may have seen other types of circular intersections such as a traffic circle, but roundabouts are far more efficient. Although roundabouts may seem foreign at first, they are very simple to use and will greatly improve safety.

The "Take it Slow" Roundabout Campaign


We've created a new informational campaign designed to help you navigate into and out of roundabouts more safely. We feature the four main roundabout tips:
  • taking it slow
  • yielding to the lft
  • not passing
  • choosing the correct lane
We've named this campaign "Take it Slow," because a major cause of roundabout crashes is speed. Check out the "Take it Slow" campaign now.roundabout information campaign.
